The new president of the South Dakota Beef Industry Council says he’s hoping to continue responsible management of the organization’s Beef Checkoff dollars as he and other cattle producers wait for the economy to improve.
After serving two terms as vice president, Merrill Karlen, of Oacoma, was elected SDBIC president. He’s been a director on the council since 2003, representing the South Dakota Cattlemen’s Association.
PIERRE – A new slate of officers stepped into leadership positions with the South Dakota Beef Industry Council following elections at the organization’s annual meeting in Brookings. The SDBIC administers the $1 Beef Checkoff on cattle sold in South Dakota. Checkoff dollars are utilized strictly for promotion, education or research programs. Fifty cents of every dollar is directed to the Cattlemen’s Beef Board for programs on the national level. The SDBIC retains 50 cents, which is invested in additional national programs or in-state programs.
